AVOID! Regrettably, our recent experience with accessing course materials after purchasing has been unsatisfactory. Post-purchase, our students encountered an inability to access the materials, leading to a considerable setback in their learning journey.

Despite our efforts to address this issue through numerous emails to customer service, we have yet to receive a resolution.

As a result of this ongoing challenges, we are considering transitioning to Teachable to ensure a smoother and more reliable access to course materials for our students.

Thinkific used to be solid and I stayed around, trusting that they would get better. Joke's on me! Their $99 level that offers subscriptions/memberships? You can't actually SEE who's in your courses or membership, unless you upgrade for another $100/month (so, their $199/mo level). So if being able to, say, email updates to your students is important (even if you're willing to go outside of the app to set up an email, but need to see who's all still enrolled first), you literally can't. Unless, of course, you want to go student account by student account and see if each one happens to be in that course/membership.

Additionally, if you want to downgrade your subscription, it's effective IMMEDIATELY. That means, if you've already paid for the month, you lose access and your money if you click that button. And if you're downgrading to a still-paid plan, you have to pay that on the spot. So you lose your money + access for the existing subscription, AND have to pay for your new subscription. There's no way around this, except to hope that you remember on your billing date (or very close to it), and handle it then.

Support is terrible. They will send you "how to" articles that don't pertain to your situation or offer "solutions" that literally don't work.

I honestly can't say how disappointed I am with this company - I wish I'd left a year ago, but I suppose the end of this month is the next best option.

I'm sure the app is fine itself but I'm not happy I was led to believe that the free version would be compatible with shopify. It is not. I am required to purchase Pro at $100 per month. I have already uploaded my entire course and am connecting it to shopify THEN I am told it'll cost me $100 per month, after I've already done all this work. Then customer service sends me a canned copy-n-paste reply and doesn't even acknowledge my concern. I'm not thrilled but I am roped into this now.

Hey there!

Thanks for your feedback and we’re glad you reached out to our Support team for help on this.

The Shopify app has always been available on all Thinkific plans, including the Free plan.

I see you’re in conversation with our Support team now, though, so that we can get more clarification around where you may have identified any requirements for a Pro plan.

We want to make sure Shopify and Thinkific work together seamlessly and as expected—so we’ll definitely take all of your feedback in this conversation into consideration.

While it's a decent platform to host a course and has good capabilities, the customer service is appalling. Replies are condescending, they don't provide reasonable solutions to my issues (in one case, telling me to delete the app in order to stop being charged - without providing the correct instructions to downgrade to the free version).
I've since been charged when I shouldn't have been (I had to upgrade to a basic plan to enrol students as it didn't integrate seamlessly with shopify). I had heard great things about it, however their customer service needs improving immensely.

Customer service? It's nonexistent! I made the mistake of using Thinkific for my primary course. I've been using them for nearly two years now, and suddenly my students aren't being enrolled in the course they paid for. Imagine how bad that looks on a business, when students put out hundreds of dollars for a course and can't access it. You'd think that in the case of a broken flow, I'd be able to manually enroll my students in the course. I can, if I pay $199 a month to have access to manual enrollment! I reached out to Thinkific through Shopify, and their automated system says someone will get back within 24 hours. It's been days! No response. I emailed again, the next day, no response. And when I tried reaching out through the Thinkific platform and going in circles with the help bot, I get met with the notice that support is only available at that low price of $199 a month! Kick rocks, Thinkific. I truly believe that this issue of broken enrollment was purposely done to force me back into the useless paid membership. I'd been paying that membership for over a year and recently downgraded because it served me no purpose. And just a few months after I downgrade, students can't enroll in my course. This is clearly a cash grab. There are way too many TRULY free platforms. Avoid this unethical company.

I have a Youtube educational channel of 225k subs. (jazzduets) and have worked hard to build a solid positive trustworthy reputation. Thinkific has hurt this reputation with my VIP customers. Let me explain. This is lamentable to say but my nightmares started when I started selling my online courses on shopify with the Thinkific integration. The integration does work not seamlessly. Customers do not get the automatic emails, so they get infuriated at paying $300 dollars for the course but cannot access it immediately, so I have to enroll many manually! As well, when I add a new course, sometimes it appears in the shopify backend and other times it does not!
The support at Thinkific has been the worse that I have experienced in 4 years of e commerce. I have sent the support many emails, and still have not had my problem solved. They are very slow in getting back. I was asked for access to my store a few weeks ago and can see that they have still yet to log in. It seems there is a programming error that they are unable or unwilling to address. I cannot therefore recommend shopify with Thinkific.
------------------------ My response to your october 21 response----
FIRST, I cannot see how your team could have addressed and resolved my problem as you contest. You asked for permission to access my store, which I agreed to, but I can see that you have still have never logged in , even after my complaint. SECOND
I have wasted many hours trying to work this out (8 months so far!!!) I have upset clients and a damaged reputation.
THIRD - I am now looking for a better platform with an integration that works and with a support that does not pass me from person to person as you have done, wasting my time further.

OUR ADMIN HAS BEEN LOCKED OUT FOR 3 DAYS. ZERO PLATFORM ACCESS. SLOW AND UNAVAILABLE IS THINKIFIC AND EVEN SLOWER TO RESOLVE AN URGENT ISSUE. Thinkific says login to chat with a live agent if you have a paid account, which you cannot do when you are locked out. We emailed twice during business hours with no response, but received one some 14 hrs later when the help desk was supposed to be closed - then crickets again. I'm wishing we had chosen another LMS platform. Not worth the price and headache so far.
